The latest addition to the Tungsten brand, manufactured by Armament Systems and Procedures, is the rechargeable Tungsten USB. When low on battery power, simply plug it into any laptop computer or micro USB-compatible cell phone charger. It comes with a retractable cord, car charger and wall charger. However, the lithium-ion battery should provide a couple hours of power before needing a charge. MSRP $105.
Designed for the law enforcement and private security industries, the Street Defender is machined from high-strength aerospace industry standard aluminum. An O-ring sealing and injection-molded positive safety feature protect against accidental discharges. The active inserts contain 30 one-half second bursts of potent, 2 million heat units-rated oleoresin capsicum, a proven irritant/deterrent. The training inserts hold an inert, lightly scented aerosol. The effective range is 10 feet. Each device is performance-tested for function and individually date-coded for reliability. MSRP $44.
The Talon is Armament Systems and Procedures’ new offering this year. The DiscLoc, button-release baton, like all the company’s expandable batons, can be deployed with a sharp, sweeping action. However, with a push of the button the Talon can also be pulled out with the opposite hand, which allows for easy deployment in confined spaces. This is made possible through the use of two opposing discs on the inside of the baton that secure each section of the shaft in place. To retract the baton, simply push the button again and either press on the end or place the Talon in the included sheath. MSRP $175.
ASP’s (Armament Systems and Procedures) new Agent Baton is small, lightweight, easy to grip, discreet and extremely effective. Made from aluminum and high grade carbon steel, this baton has a striking surface rating of 240,000 PSI tensile strength, which in layman’s terms translates into a devastatingly low profile baton that packs a punch. When fully retracted, the baton measures 7.75 inches but rapidly extends to become a 16-inch LeverLoc less-than-lethal device. It also comes with a snap lock clip, which enables it to be carried in a range of positions. Because the ASP Agent Baton is lightweight and small, it is easily hidden in a pocket or waistband making it an ideal “off-duty” baton.
The 4th Generation Triad delivers a mind-numbing 265 lumens of intense light powered by two 3V lithium batteries providing the user with 90 minutes of worry-free use. ASP thought of everything from the waterproof exterior and foam grip to the self-cleaning computer micro switch and advanced heat dissipation feature, all the way down to the built-in thermal management technology that helps keep this Triad cool to the touch. The unique multiposition clip enables the carrier to secure the light in various positions, making this flashlight a great choice for those who demand high performance from their gear.
